Day 19 - A Double!!! - Day 20 (class 21) - Back row

Friday - 4:30-6:00pm and 6:30-8:00pm

I planned for a double on Friday afternoon. I knew I wasn't going to make it on Saturday, family plans. Someone suggested that I take a shower in between classes. Do you ever do this? It was tempting. I had extra clothes with me but I didn't. I was so tired I'd have probably ran home after the shower. My body is feeling very sore and stiff lately. My first class was just good. The second class was relaxing BUT only after I completely surrendered. I had a little anxiety attack towards the beginning of the second class. It usual happens when I do a back-to-back. My train of thought was "I've already been in the room for 90 minutes, I don't need to stay for another 90. Gosh I already told the teacher. Wow, 180 minutes. Do I really need to do rabbit pose again?". I am glad I stayed in the room.

Sat - OFF

Sun - 8:00 am
I took a back seat since my body is tired and practiced in the back row. It felt really weird. This is my first time practicing in that spot. I usual stand in the front rows, all over the room ( left, right, middle). Not sure I liked the back though.


  1. Yes, I take a shower in between doubles. I just take one in the changing room. Yay for doubles!

  2. Do you change your clothes between classes? I would find it hard to put on the same clothes... hmm. Can't wait to try my first double!

  3. Congrats on your double! I don't know if I'd take a shower between back-to-back classes. How cool to hear about surrendering in the second class; that's a lesson I need to revisit...

    I had Cafe Spice (from Grand Central, not the real one) for dinner last night, and dedicated it to you. :)

  4. Greg - I'll plan for a shower next time!

    E - You probably need a second set of clothes if you take a shower. Give it a try. Doubles are fun!! Do you ever come to the BYRB studio?

    Catherine - Yo went to Cafe Spice and dedicated to me ;) *Big smile on my face* Thank you!!! Looooove Indian food. When I lived in NYC I was a vegetarian for 2 years. I ate Indian almost every day. My fave Brick Lane Curry House!!
